So in my thesis I state (with the help of a friend) that lovely is a word used to describe everything from a wedding to a funeral....
and that is the very reason I chose the word lovely... as my show title.
well, it seems appropriate even now...
this thing that is indefinable, wonderful, beautiful, but not necessarily "good or pleasant."
I had no idea how difficult this process would be.
I had no idea I would be the way I have been during this process.
And I had no idea that I would not feel the way I wanted or expected at the end of all this.
I do not feel accomplishment, I feel like I have just begun, I have so much more work to do...
I have so much to improve, to change, to evolve....
and I know this is a good thing, that mentally I am already responding, critiquing, expanding on what I have done.
But there is a part of me, and at the moment a BIG part of me that just wishes this felt wonderful.
And it does not...
This is the path I have chosen.
And I would not change a thing.
But this road is not smooth, not always pleasant, and not easy.
I look forward to coming back here and sharing what is next instead of what is.
Seeing my work in a gallery is so different then seeing it in my studio.
Getting critiqued in a a gallery is so different then in my studio.
And I look forward to getting back to my studio
